Many of you will already be aware that Lincoln has been placed into TIER FOUR from midnight on 30/12/20. We are pleased to say that this doesn’t mean we HAVE to close but we do need to consider if we SHOULD close.
After careful consideration and by carrying out a review of our COVID SECURE operating procedures we have decided we will remain OPEN in the immediate term with a review in 14 days.
There are some changes -
1, We will now run TWO SUNDAY MORNING SWIM SESSIONS instead of one to reduce footfall on site. These can be booked through the app in the normal way and there will be enough spaces and places for all current members spread across the two sessions.
Session one - 10 am to 10.45 am
Session two - 11.15 am to 12.00 noon
Please attend NO SOONER THAN 10 minutes before your session start time but consider coming later to spread footfall through the session time.
Last admission to the water will be -
Session One - 10.30 am
Session Two - 11.45 am
2, SWIM TIME remains restricted to 2 mins per degree or 10 minutes at 5 DegreeC or lower
3, We ask that you MAINTAIN A 2 M RULE WHILE ON SITE especially while queuing for sign in and/or food and drinks.
4, We ask that you COME SWIM READY to reduce footfall in the outdoor changing areas which should be considered re warming areas for after your swim to avoid confusion.
5, We ask that you WEAR A MASK while in the rewarming areas or while queuing for food and drink.
6, We ask that you RETURN TO YOUR VEHICLE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to fully re warm before departing on your return journey home.
We ask that you support us in these changes so we can remain open and continue to support the local COLD WATER SWIMMING COMMUNITY.
If you have any questions or queries please feel free to send us a message and we will endeavour to answer you as soon as we can.
